The number of rural dwellings in Italy is stable. You won't find a lot of new buildings there, and existing houses are protected. These houses may be
converted. That's also why you often have to pay so much for a renovation object. In rural areas, the condition of a property is usually not
essential for the house price.
Below an overview of the factors that determine the price of a rural dwelling
Distance to the nearest airport or highway
Distance to the big cities
Distance to the sea
Architectural or historical characteristics
You can very well renovate your house in Italy. You can adjust the home to your taste. But you have to hire a good geometra and skilled artisans.
The geometra is responsible for the construction site and the construction work. The geometra performs various roles: master builder, engineer, and
architect. He is also the liaison for the building companies, government, and municipalities. The geometra coordinates the renovation works,
maintains contacts with the construction businesses and craftsmen, arranges papers, permits, and requests for electricity and water. The cost of a
geometra usually amounts to around 14-16% of the building costs.
In the house, you can go ahead, but outside the house, you can change nothing. Expansion of the house is not possible. You may also not place any new
buildings. You can adjust the interior of the house to your taste. It is also allowed to enlarge windows or to add new windows. And a swimming pool
is often also possible.
